London, Mar 2: A star honouring legendary actor Richard Burton was unveiled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next to that of his wife Elizabeth Taylor on St David’s Day.
The couple’s adopted daughter Mar a and Welsh actor Michael Sheen attended the ceremony at Hollywood Boulevard on Wales’ national day.
The unveiling was also timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the couple’s famous film ‘Cleopatra,’ the BBC reported.
The unveiling of the star – the 2,491st pavement plaque that has been installed on the Walk of Fame – comes after the Western Mail newspaper started a campaign for Burton to be recognised.
Burton, who died in 1984, starred alongside Taylor in 11 films. (ANI)
